Here are a few highlights from the past holiday week on AOA:
+ We gave away weekend passes to Rest Fest by asking: What's something about the Capital Region that you would like to see restored?
+ The Capitol crane is finally coming down.
+ New York is less obese than most of the other states (not the same thing as be not obese).
+ Fin -- the popular mobile fishmonger -- is opening a permanent shop in Guilderland.
+ The Albany Police Department is taking a step toward sharing more information with the public.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: lights on Lark, grand jury duty, ice cream sandwiches, polo, Playhouse in the Park, getting muddy at the Warrior Dash, the Altamont Fair, 45-cent avocados, $14 biscotti, cookie butter, a disappointing breakfast, salamanders, and Dutch dogs.
+ Greg talked about what it was like to serve on an Albany County grand jury.
+ Albany's DelSo neighborhood is now Google official.
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: a drive-by smiling, a different interpretation of Jack and Jill, asking random people to go to a wedding, and four mannequins.
+ The Schenectady Museum changed its name.
+ We got the word on what's up with a school building residential conversion near Washington Park.
+ You can register to vote online now.
+ And Casey found why you should look for the ugly peaches.
